So Teague now has the Carlton job. They only interviewed Voss and Teague.

Seriously it baffles me that for one of the most sought after jobs in Australian sport, head coach of an AFL team, that North interview one guy and Carlton two. I really hope we at least speak to a few candidates because ours is the main prize now.

I really thought Carlton would have done a more intensive search. North seemingly went for their old players, missed out, and then settled on Shaw. Who knows though, might be like Hawthorn missing out on Wallace all those years ago.

I like the romanticism of Harves, but my head says Ratts really.

Feel for Harves in a way.

Comes back as assistant under Ross.

Appointed interim coach in 2011 for 3 weeks (which wasn’t even necessary) and then loses out to Scott Watters.

Goes elsewhere for obvious reasons and to gain further experience.

Dips his toe in the water again post Scott Watters but is over looked for Richo.

Comes back for an interview this time with Ratts paying $1.05 to get the gig.

Perhaps he should have read the room better before going public with his intentions?

Very awkward for him.and the club if he doesn't get it IMO.

The unfortunate thing for Harvey is if he gets the job (which I don't think he will), the general perception will be he only got it because he is a legend of the club and not because he was the best candidate available.

And I dont think anyone could disagree with that. Looking at Ratten's CV, his experience, his relationship with the players, his actual output while caretaker - I don't see how any other candidate could actually compare to what he has to offer.

I know the club is all about going through the process to cover themselves if it goes wrong but the quicker we just hire Ratten, the better we will be as a club.
Harvey also has never coached a team in his right

Carra is back at Essendon next year.

Longmuir, I have no idea. Highly unlikely.
Longmuir is probably happy to wait a year and go back to Freo after Lyon exits. Apparently highly regarded, which means any coach under pressure doesn't want him around.

Good for Richo to be highly sought after. I didn't think he would deliver a flag, but no meaningful contribution from Steven and Hanners cost him his job.

As to North's dilemma they were on a hiding to nothing. Tried for the cream without success and, basically, no-one of quality wanted to go there. Bit like Blues after MM was sacked, or Hawks in 2004.

Scott can sod off and take his root rat AFL mate with him.
Ratten has a better win loss ratio, has current experience with the club and had the foresight to be the assistant coach of a team when the senior coach was a dud under pressure.
But in AFL land its not what you know but who you know so the North reject is in with a good chance.
